Investment Planned

Crown Inn

23 Scotland Road, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 9HS

Pub overview

Situated on the main road into Carlisle, The Crown Inn will be completely transformed into the best pub in the area. Moving from two bar areas to one, with a fantastic investment scheme, this is a great opportunity for an experienced operator.

With the large planned investment at the Crown, its essential that our new tenant has experience of running a busy bar with food. Also as this is a local pub, events, sport and community will be key to building trade so an interest in these things is essential.

After the investment there will be one large bar area which will be carefully zoned so that the bar customers watching sport feel comfortable at one side, with more of a food area at the other. There is a fully enclosed beer garden to the rear.
